Microsoft continues to have problems getting a system software update to all the devices running Windows Phone 7. The latest device to run into problems is the Samsung Omnia 7.
This update, code-named NoDo, adds cut, copy, and paste functions to Microsoft’s smartphone operating system. It started going out to various models in March, but there have been problems with it from the beginning.
In the latest of these, Michael Stroh from the Windows Phone development team wrote on his company’s blog yesterday that:
We’ve temporarily stopped sending updates to Omnia7s. The team discovered a technical issue with the update package for this model. The work of fixing and testing the package is nearly done, and the team hopes to resume update deliveries soon. When I know more about the timing, I’ll pass it along.
The Samsung Omnia 7 was not picked up by any U.S. carrier. It is available as an unlocked GSM model from online retailers, however.
